Frustrated mother makes last ditch effort for son

Bus contract and budget to be voted on at special meeting

HEGINS – A mother who demanded her fourth grade son be moved back to Hegins-Hubley Elementary School at last month’s meeting of the Tri-Valley School Board, returned again to the June 8 meeting of the board.
Last month the mother, who asked that she and her son not be named in the newspaper, told the board that her son was one of a handful of students who were transferred from Hegins-Hubley to Mahantongo Elementary last year due to class sizes. She claims that since her son’s transfer his grades have plummeted and he is receiving D’s and F’s and has had to pull tickets for disciplinary reasons.


Frailey looking to lower costs

DONALDSON – Frailey Township supervisors will go back to the drawing board on a developing drainage problem on West Center Street.
Township secretary Donald Allar spoke about the problem at the June 7 meeting, at a home in the 400 block of West Center Street.
“We inherited the problem and the drains and now have to fix it.”
The township talked with a contractor who quoted them a price of $13,737.70 to install new drains and fix the problem. Under township code, any project that costs more than $10,000 must have three phone quotes for it, or put it out to bid.
Allar said that he will go back to the contractor to see if the project can go under the $10,000 limit to eliminate the red tape.
